The DJCF College Scholarships application process has ended.
The DJCF is now reviewing literally hundreds of applications for the 2017-2018 school year. The qualified applications will then be reviewed by three different committees. Each applicant is first made anonymous to insure that each student is evaluated on the three qualifications, academics, financial, and community service, which are the committee names as well. Each committee member reads the student essay plus the qualifications special to that committee. Once the committee members scores are submitted, the students are put into contention for every scholarship they are qualified for and a decision meeting the end of April awards the student with the highest score for each scholarship. With close to 50 scholarships available for distribution there are many opportunities for the qualified applicants to receive a scholarship ranging anywhere from $500 - $7,500. Students will be notified if they are a recipient or not in early May and then on May 22nd the reception for scholarship awardees, their families, teachers and the entire DJCF community will be held at the JCC at 7900 Northaven Rd.
The Dallas Jewish Community Foundation provides college scholarships to eligible students from Dallas, Denton & Collin counties; specialty scholarships to students at SMU, University of Oklahoma and Texas A&M; as well as Jewish students from Texas towns with two or fewer congregations. Students of any and all faiths are encouraged to apply. At least 45 college scholarships are awarded each year based on financial need, academic merit, involvement in extracurricular activities and/or community service. Scholarships range from $500.00 to $7,500.00 and most allow study at the college or university of the recipient's choice. In addition to general scholarships, there are specific scholarships for those studying the following fields; medicine, law, education, fashion merchandising, and Jewish studies. High school seniors, undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to apply. Fortunately only one application is needed for the myriad of scholarships since questions are designed to allow each applicant to be considered for every scholarship for which he/she may be eligible. The scholarships were created by individuals or organizations who have established endowment funds (funds that continue forever) at the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation because they care deeply about helping students attend college. The application process is available only for those students who are submitting their FAFSA report until March 1, 2017.
